If you have logicals over this file, you may want to change the “Access path maintenance” to “*dly”. This will allow the “RGZPFM” to run faster because the access path will not be update during the reorg. After it finishes, submit the change to the logicals “Access path maintenance” to “*immed” (or what they were before). Hopefully noone or not job will open the logicals until they finish or they will be waiting a while. If you submit all of the jobs to batch with a jobq that runs one at a time you will not have to watch them run. (If you have a job that will email/page you, you could submit it last and then you will know when it is done.)
MDratwa’s response get’s promoted.
the ‘no’ answer was lame and not helpful.
I say RGZPFM.
You need to make sure the file is flagged to reuse deleted records otherwise it’s isn’t going to help much.
Try scheduling this reorg to run every few weeks and it will run faster
